Let's see...it's Monday...what shall we talk about?
How 'bout we shift gears and discuss something besides all the snow?
How 'bout we discuss all the ice?
Does this look like a problem to you?
Did you know ice is frozen water?
Just call me Mr. Wizard.
Someday it will warm up enough to melt all of this ice.
And we really need that someday to arrive gradually.
If ice in a gutter melts too quickly it may very well decide to run right down the inside walls of a house.
We need to avoid the rapid melt.
We are hoping for a gradual melt.
The weather forecast is calling for snow on Tuesday and ice pellets on Wednesday.
I don't think we're in danger of a rapid melt.
Hubs took the painting pole that extends and swatted some of these bad boys down this weekend.
It required a great deal of finesse not to be speared by the falling ice.
Which is why I watched from inside the safety of the house.
In other fun this weekend the steps re-iced and this required chipping and salting and shoveling and hauling and perhaps a teensy bit of swearing.
Is anyone else just a little bit tired of the very exhausting 2011 winter weather?
She loves to run and prance and stick her face in the deep snow.
And trust me...it's deep.
You know, sometimes you have to work to find the joy in winter.
I think I may have found a little here.
